2010 Teen Choice Awards Beauty-Leighton Meester

Leighton Meester strutted her stuff on the green carpet at yesterday's Teen Choice Awards (airing tonight). COVERGIRL Makeup Artist, Molly R. Stern, gave the Gossip Girl star a fresh and ethereal beauty look that perfectly complimented her feminine weather-appropriate Emilio Pucci mini-dress.  

The makeup artist gave me the low-down on how she created the actress/singer's glowing face.

Face: Stern prepped Leighton's skin with Josie Marin Argan Oil Skin Primer and lightly moisturized with Sk-11 Facial Lift Emulsion. She then used a minimal amount of COVERGIRL Clean Liquid Makeup. Finally,  she swept on Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Moist Glow in Nuelle and dusted YSL Touché Blush over the top.

Luxury treatment? To set Meester's look for the red carpet Stern dusted all over with the super luxe La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation in Linen.
The foundation costs $95.00 per compact!

Eyes: Stern wanted to created a celestial glow with a bit of a rock and roll edge. She first put a base on her eye with NARS Cream Shadow in Corfu on the lid and then added Shu Uemura 'P Gold 94' over the top. She added a little silver sparkly glittery shadow from RMK, (from Japan), to the inside of the lid and under the outer edge of the eye. She then lined the top of the lid at the lash line and under the eye with COVERGIRL LiquiLineBlast Eyeliner in Blue Boom. For her lashes she added two coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion in Brown.

Lips: Her pout was kept simple. Stern wanted a long lasting nude so she chose COVERGIRL Oulast Lipstain in Nude Kiss on the lip with COVERGIRL ShineBlast Lipgloss in Dazzle over top.
